FARGO, N.D.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Fargo, N.D. recently relocated operations into a new general aviation facility adjacent to the Fargo Jet Center.
The new air passenger facility streamlines the inspection process for arriving passengers, via international general aviation flights from around the globe. Prior to the construction of the new general aviation facility, Fargo CBP officers processed international flights at two separate locations (Fargo/Hector International Airport and the Fargo Jet Center). The construction of this new facility, allows CBP to provide a streamlined inspection process at one location for all international flights.
"CBP's commitment to border security starts with strong partnerships with our stakeholders. Working with the Fargo Airport Authority to create this beautiful facility, while meeting our operational needs and streamlining the inspection process, has been a pleasure," said Mary Delaquis, CBP Area Port Director of Field Operations in Pembina, N.D. The Fargo Airport Authority funded the project on behalf of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The new facility was constructed using a design that supports CBP's current inspection requirements and is adaptable to future workloads, technologies, and operational needs.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
